To whom it may concern, John T. Campo and Associates, Inc. (“Campo Architects”) has been a leader in the Hospitality Design market for over 25 years. I have had a positive professional relationship with John T. Campo, Campo Architects President, for the last thirteen years. John Campo is an “Owner’s Architect.” He and his firm have developed a culture that puts the Owner’s interests first, and they evaluate each project with an architect’s perspective while also aiming a critical eye at enhancing the bottom line. Campo Architects’ designs are remarkable because they address the aesthetic expectations of the guests and the profit goals of the owner. John has acquired this experience by being both an architect and a hotel owner, a position that gives him the ability to look at every deal from both vantage points. It is my understanding that Campo Architects has designed over 150 hotels in over 15 states and is particularly adept at designing hotels within historic structures. John understands the Marriott standards and is currently working on ten Marriott hotels for clients in Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, and Alabama. Campo Architects has also recently completed the AC Bourbon Hotel by Marriott, the first of its kind in the United States. It is without hesitation that I recommend Campo Architects for Marriott International hotel projects on a national basis. Please feel free to contact me by phone at (301) 3803488 or via email at eric.jacobs@marriott.com.

Sincerely,

Eric B. Jacobs

To Whom It May Concern,

To whom it may concern, Since 2008, NewcrestImage and John T. Campo & Associates, Inc. have nurtured a successful relationship, working together on projects involving both architectural and historic tax credit services. Campo Architects has successfully completed two past projects for NewcrestImage and is currently working on another historic hotel renovation in downtown New Orleans. The firm is an effective team member in the design and construction processes. The Campo team diligently addresses Ownership concerns, navigates complicated existing building variances with the Authorities Having Jurisdiction in order to help overall renovation costs, and coordinates with the contractor to explore and implement cost-effective building techniques. Campo Architects also successfully converted the historic New Orleans Cotton Exchange Building into the first AC Hotel by Marriott in the United States. Under a design-assist scenario, Campo and the General Contractor completed renovations to this eight-story, 220 guestroom hotel within seven short months; previous contractors had provided a timeline of at least ten months. Campo and NewcrestImage worked together to complete the Historic Preservation Certification process for this building and obtained approximately $11 million in historic tax credits for the project. Currently, Campo Architects and NewcrestImage are working together on another downtown New Orleans historic renovation with a construction value estimated at $15 million. The project, which is a Marriott dual-branded high-rise hotel, is currently in the permitting phase. NewcrestImage would highly recommend the Campo Architects team and looks forward to continuing their professional relationship with the firm.

I have had the pleasure of working with Campo Architects since August 2015 on the design of a new 240 key high-rise hotel in downtown New Orleans. As a first-time client working with the Campo team, I have been continually impressed by their level of professionalism and commitment to achieving an outstanding project. For this project, we needed a team with extensive hospitality experience, especially in the New Orleans market. What drove us to engage Campo Architects was their reputation in the hospitality industry and wealth of experience with complex design and construction projects. True to their reputation, the Campo team has exhibited extensive knowledge of the hospitality market and utilized established relationships with leaders in the industry to ensure the project’s success. From the beginning of the project, Campo was highly involved in the selection process of a general contractor for Design/Assist CM at Risk services. Since the selection and throughout the project, Campo has demonstrated a high level of collaboration with all parties, working through project iterations in a cooperative, professional manner. The Campo team is engaged for both the architecture and interior design of this project. With both disciplines operating under the same roof, I have noticed a seamless approach in the design team’s delivery. In addition to the exceptional quality of design that has been presented, the team has been continuously mindful of project restraints including budget and schedule. I would give Campo Architects my highest recommendation. If I can answer any questions or provide any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely, Mehul Patel, CHA, CHO Chairman & Chief Executive Officer NewcrestImage

November 13, 2017 To whom it may concern, I am writing to recommend the services of John T. Campo & Associates, Inc. My relationship with Campo Architects began in 2013, where we worked side by side to rehabilitate the existing 346 Baronne Inn & Suites in New Orleans, Louisiana into a custom Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott. The building was originally constructed in 1904 with a heavy timber structure which provided some unique challenges and opportunities for the design. The project scope included a complete redesign of the 1st floor public spaces, widespread upgrades to the 103 guestrooms, and a new mechanical system including a chiller and vertical fan coil units. Campo Architects acted as the Architect of Record, as well as the historic tax credit consultant for this renovation. This dual role proved critical to the success of the project, allowing me as the Project Manager, to focus my time and efforts elsewhere instead of continually overseeing that the two disciplines were coordinated properly. Because of Campo’s dual role, the project was seamlessly approved by the Historic Agencies without hesitation. Additional to Campo’s hospitality expertise, they brought to the table a greater understanding of the code challenges faced by historic buildings. Campo was able to successfully navigate numerous existing building conditions that did not meet current code requirements by offering equivalencies that saved our Client a great deal within their strict budget. One specific example included the reuse of a historic stair where many of the dimensions were not up to code. Campo worked closely with the Authority Having Jurisdiction to provide several equivalent life safety measures so that the stair could be reused as a second means of egress, sparing our Client from having to install an expensive new stair shaft. I feel confident in recommending Campo Architects, and am looking forward to our next endeavor together. They are thorough, easy to work with and always willing to take the time to discuss my questions and concerns. Sincerely, Walsh Associates, Inc.

William J. Walsh, President 140
